Hnee Paya (Bamboo strip lacquer Buddha Image) in Kalaw

      It lies in Pinmagon Monastery of Pinmagon Village in Kalaw Township at the south of Shan State. It was estimated to have been established in First Inn-wa Period over 500 years ago. The donors were hard to determine and there were no records but its head was sharp upright, its ears were not touching the shoulders and the nether garment was covered for the whole of its lower parts. So it was believed to be historic. It is eight feet four inches high. It is noted for its longevity, its prevention of fire and its wish-granting powers. Occasionally radiation seemed to come from the pagoda at the front of image. The image is now lacquered and gilded all the way.
